“Premises liability” is the legal term that refers to the duty and responsibility a property owner has to maintain a safe environment on their premises. Such a duty includes warning individuals of any dangers or defective conditions on the property and taking the necessary steps, when possible, to repair such safety hazards.
A premises liability claim can arise in a variety of ways. It can happen due to:
Slipping and falling on a wet floor or pavement
Tripping and falling due to debris on the floor, poor lighting, or broken hand railings
Unfinished or damaged stairwells
Being attacked by an animal on the property
Any other hazardous conditions
